About Me

65 years old. Lifelong democrat. Saw JFK in New Haven CT on election eve 1960. I was all of 5 years old. Cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter. Stayed up all night at the English Speaking Union I London to watch the returns. We celebrated the results about 9 AM London time. I cried the morning I learned Bobby Kennedy had been shot. I don't think I ever quite recovered, although President Obama's election helped a lot. These days I'm a moderate democrat and a cultural conservative. I miss the world of good manners, fancy dress and dancing cheek to cheek. Big TCM fan.

Colleges- The Secret Vaccine Mandate?

Owing to a little debate I was having on another thread I am beginning to check out whether colleges and universities are requiring returning students to be vaccinated for the fall. I started with my own Little Ivy League school and then it's two almost as good rivals. Then some of the state universities in New England. Now I'm onto the Big Ten. They all seem to be mandating. It can be done!

Not too much of a Sinatra fan, but this one's pretty good.

Dedicated to twogunsid!



There are those of us who love what you do!

I think vaccinations should be mandatory

I don't agree with mask mandates, but the solution is obvious. Every employer should require them. Every venue should require proof of vaccination. WWII could do mandatory rationing. The casualties are about the same.
Every where you damn go you have to carry your vax card like a driver's licence. The damn things should have been smaller to fit into your wallet.

It's Been a Long, Long Time - Bing Crosby



It was December 1945 and ever so slowly the boys were coming home from all over the world. And everyone was singing this song!

Gran'ma Plays the Numbers - Sy Oliver



In the 70s and 80s Sy Oliver led the house band at the Rainbow Room high above the streets of Manhatten. This one from 1949 is just for fun.
